, thank you. >>> there is a new controversy over the attack on the american consulate in benghazi. secretary of state hillary clinton seemed to suggest for the first time that al qaeda was behind the attack that killed the american ambassador to libya, but this morning the state department is saying hold on a moment. our good friend is here with us and margaret, this is an example where the state department does not like a story that is on the front page of the papers today. >> they do not. the secretary of state gave a speech about mali. two references to al qaeda and the group, and because of that "the new york times" wrote this story saying she is linking the two. senior aides to the secretary of state say she absolutely does not have the evidence to assert that link right now. remember, the fbi has to make the determination. they're still not in benghazi. the state department will say, though, that al qaeda called aqim very active in the region and they're up in arms coming from mali into libya and this is one of the countries where you have a new government that isn't fully i
, on what exactly happened in benghazi has recently changed. i wonder how that might impact this debate. >> i would be shocked if there wasn't some questioning from that either from the moderators or at least perhaps some attention drawn to it by mitt romney. this is a huge issue for the president, is his policy working in north africa, in the middle east? what happened there? did the administration tell the truth? if they didn't tell the truth, why didn't they tell the truth? i absolutely expect this to be part of the debate. the idea that the president is somehow not practiced to speak in public or engage in public debate baugs he hasn't had more than a few days in nevada to prepare is a little ridiculous. >> jonathan, with obama's lead widening in the polls, how important are these debates in your view for romney? more specifically, how important is the first debate? >> each of these debates is an opportunity for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almo
is in benghazi this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well it's a quiet morning in benghazi but that's an uneasy quiet after this citizens protest against the parra military overnight turned into a violent showdown. it started as a simple protest. the people of benghazi coming together to send a message to the armed groups who control their city, and who attacked america's consulate ten days ago killing ambassador chris stevens. the message is we had enough. overhead libya's military showed support for the crowd. things remained peaceful until after dark when core groups of protesters decided to enforce their message. they besieged several of the militia bases that dot the city and pushed them out. then they got into their cars and headed out to the suburbs to the main parra military base and that's when things got ugly. in the case of forced entry, looting and the militia fighters melting away into the night there was shooting in all directions. there were casualties, that much is clear but we still don't know how many were wounded or killed. now we just learned
, militant terrorists and they are the ones who attacked the cult in benghazi and they have been doing their deed for the last 10, 15 years since afghanistan, iraq and now around the world. so you got that movement going. you got mainstream islamic groups like muslim brotherhood groups in egypt and other places who are competing for a new place in the political arena that's evolving in these countries that's democraticizing and old pent up grievances against the united states and other western countries. you have three or four things coming together where they are evolving political conditions and people are competing to get public opinions, so these things come together and that's how we should best understand this. >> is this a subset of the arab world or a broad base thing? >> what's interesting you have these demonstrations all over the islamic world, indonesia, nigeria, bangladesh. the movie triggers anger and rage for muslims across the islamic world. in the arab world you have a set of political grievances against the u.s. and europe and other places and these are coming into pl
of a spontaneous protest as officials in the u.s. are saying. benghazi is where the four americans were killed. >> reporter: there are important divisions between the united states and libya on the investigation of what exactly happened at the consulate and the safe house that night. the u.n. ambassador susan rice said it appears that the attacks were not premeditated. but that's not what we're hearing here. the president of the libyan national council said not only does it look like they were premeditated, but it may have taken months in the planning. what i can tell you is we saw plenty of evidence of heavy weapons at this safe house. mortars and other kinds of weapons that take a level of expertise to deploy that accurately. we've also seen new cell phone footage of what appears to be libyans removing the body of ambassador christopher stevens from the consulate that night. they don't seem to know who he is. they identify him as a foreigner. they believe that he is alive at the time. they're shouting out whether anybody knows first aid. and the young man who showed us that video says that a
